  • They will get back to you shortly. Can you share a bit more info like the Driver version, what was the last game you played before the issue happened? Have you tried to change modes?
  • Hi there, i am using the latest firmware playing GT Sport and F1 2019. i cant seem to change anything because it starts to boot up but after the yellow leds come on it starts flashing the red power light. The first thing that happened was my brand new GT3 Wheel which i sent in for repair the x button i guess you can call it quit working but i have used it after that and all was fine till i think Monday night tried to play and and it would not boot with any of my Fanatec wheels.
  • Try removing the wheel and then booting the base with no rim attached. Connect to a PC with the driver window open and see if the base registers.
  • Thanks i will give that a shot.
  • I did try your instructions but still no go, it will take the firmware but it will not restart just 3 yellow leds and the red power light flashing, it was worth a try
  • Please check the base hub and wheel quick release that no pins have broken off and are stuck in the hub.
  • Thanks, no broken pins i double checked.
  • I think if you've tried all suggestions your best bet is working it out with the support team.
  • Anybody know what is up with getting support lately ? been trying to get this thing fixed for days now i have tried all there suggestions and it still does the same thing. thank you.

    So you're in contact with Fanatec Support? If all suggested fixes have not worked, you need to let them know and they will probably call in your wheel base to get it repaired.
  • just waiting i guess its been a while oh well, thanks for your quick response at least.

    It may take some time between responses, unfortunately. 
  • I have a similar problem.

  • Yes it seems to be happening to many people, i had to send it in for repair it was like 43.00 to ship it. Oh well i guess hope you can get your working.
  • Well anyone who has had this red light flashing problem at least in my case it has a bad motor they say and it is 145.00 to get it fixed, Wow I had maybe 20 hours on this thing if that and I hardly have time anymore to use it and when I do its junk, I guess that is why there is a new version. I guess I am in the market for a new PS4 wheel but not this brand.
  • Thank you for everybody's responses I know you all where trying to help and I appreciate that just very disappointed in there customer service and I guess I have a 500.00 paper weight.
